The initial severe contralateral impairment of motor function after unilateral damage to a portion of sensorimotor (SM) cortex lessens within a few weeks after injury. In this study, two hypotheses proposed to explain recovery of behavioral function after cortical injury were tested: (1) Intact cortex adjacent to the injury reorganizes to take over the… CONTINUE READING
